Coding and having fun with YouVersion and WordPress

Over the last month or so I have had the privilege to work with the Digerati at on a plugin for WordPress.  It allows WordPress authors to link scripture references to YouVersion, an online Bible, produced by  You even have the option to have a text bubble appear over your reference with the verses you are referencing.  You can read the official announcement here,

It’s interesting how the whole project came about.  My old boss who hired me at my current job, contacted me out of the blue a few months ago.  I had been having a rough week, and flippantly asked if he knew of any work at LifeChurch.  He passed on my information and the team found out that I had been spending a portion of my time at Fielder with WordPress development.  They thought I was a good fit for the project and here we are.

This project has been a chance for me to try and mesh two of my passions, serving Christ and programming, into a common goal.  Paul’s words to the Colossians describe it best, Colossians 1:28-29.
